Create an Announcement

With announcements, you can post timely information critical to course success. On the Announcements page, you can add, edit, and delete announcements. This is an ideal place to post time-sensitive material including:

  • Due dates for assignments and projects.
  • Changes to your syllabus.
  • Corrections/clarifications of materials.
  • Exam schedules.

When you add an announcement, you can also send the announcement as an email to students in your course. This ensures that students receive the announcement even if they do not log in to your course. If you include links to course content, the email will not include links to that content.
